Great Britain: Charles I gold Triple Unite 1644 Oxon,...
A Beautiful Small Flan Triple UniteCharles I gold Triple Unite 1644 Oxon, S2729, Schneider-303, plumelet mm on obverse only, Oxford mint, XF Details, Mount Removed NGC, lustrous but lightly cleaned, details certainly at least those of an XF coin, beautifully detailed and compelling portrait, the surrounding legend as well as the entire reverse crisp in detail (as is the mm Plume above the king's head), surfaces almost entirely free of abrasions, a few pits before the sword that are annealing flaws in the gold metal, excellent rims with most of the denticles or "teeth" in evidence, and a super nice roundish flan. A mount may have been removed but you cannot see it in the slab. Not perfect by any means, but this is in fact a very nice Triple Unite, especially of the smaller flan variety, made "late in the day" as the Civil War was heating up in 1644 and poor King Charles was literally on the run from fortress to fortress, his principal hold-out being at Oxford, where this historic coin was minted. A classic gold coin.
From the Highlands Park Collection of British Coins.
